- About Me
I am an early career researcher based in Melbourne. My research is in the social history of war, focusing on military psychiatry and soldiering during the South African and Vietnam Wars. I have a PhD from Flinders University, and my monograph is entitled Australian Soldiers in South Africa and Vietnam: Words from the Battlefield (Bloomsbury Academic, 2016).
